German Cities and German Towns

If you drive through Germany and explore our German cities and towns, you will experience that many cities are scattered throughout the country. We have, however, large German cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, and Cologne, as well as a lot of towns and villages.

Germany has about 82 million inhabitants. In the largest city, Berlin, live however only about 3.4 million inhabitants. In other words, it is here different to some other countries on earth where most people live concentrated in huge cities.

We have sufficient stress during the day so that we love to relax in the evening. Best in calm environment in the country.
